04 Jul BICSc first Roadshows are a huge success
You should have heard about our newly launched Roadshow events, which are touring the UK throughout 2016. Our first BICSc Roadshow took place in May at Sealed Air Diversey Care in Northampton, and was followed in June by our Roadshow in Canary Wharf, London at the very impressive KPMG Head Quarters.
Both events were a huge success and we have been overwhelmed with the positive feedback we have received from many of those who joined us. David Hughes who attended the Northampton Roadshow said “My colleague and I thoroughly enjoyed the day, especially the “Who’s hitching a free ride?” presentation delivered by Ken Hallett. It was very relevant to our workplace and we have already put many of the learnings in to action.”
The Roadshows were the perfect opportunity for our members and industry professionals to learn more about the cleaning industry from key speakers as well as share inspiration from peers over a networking lunch. We were delighted to see lots of business cards being exchanged across both events, so we hope our attendees were able to make some valuable new contacts.
Joanna Begg, Customer Support Manager at BICSc who organised the events said “We wanted all of our attendees to feel inspired and to be able to take away some actionable insights that they could use to support their own business or career, and judging by the feedback we have received so far we feel this was certainly achieved. We are very excited for our next few Roadshows and hope to see many more of our BICSc members and training centres there.”
Our next Roadshow will be taking place in Belfast on the 27th July. This will be the first time BICSc has travelled to Ireland as a team, and we will also be joined by our CEO, Stan Atkins. The event will be taking place at Gaol Visitor Attraction, one of Belfast’s most Infamous Prisons. We still have spaces available for our Belfast Roadshow.
